Welcome to Fourth Grade!

  • Dear Families,
    Welcome to 4th Grade!  Fourth grade is an important transition year.  Students become "intermediate", and the academic leaps are significant.  Students transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn."  We work towards increased independence and responsibility as students become responsible for their own learning and behavior.  It is a wonderful year of growth!   We teach students that hard work and practice will make new learning feel easier, and that creativity is an attribute to be valued and shared.  We utilize the Workshop Model of Instruction, and work hard to integrate the arts, science, and Idaho History into our content areas.  We value our parent partnerships immensely, and look forward to working with you and your fourth grader.
    Best Regards,
